Project Information

Objective 3

"Generating management advice for the monitoring of thin lipped mullet and sea lamprey using the fish monitoring facilities installed on the Frome, Oir and Scorff."

The third key objective of the MorFish project is to collect information to better understand the movements of the sea lamprey Petromyzonmarinus and thin lipped mullet Lizaramadawhichmigrate from the sea into our rivers. Understanding the key drivers of their migration patterns from the sea into freshwater such as river flow, tide and water temperature will enable a better understanding of their lifecycles and management advice.
